Ex-official in New Jersey bridge scandal to plead guilty: Bloomberg

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 04/30/2015 - 04:11
(Reuters) - A former ally of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is expected to plead guilty on Thursday to criminal charges related to the George Washington Bridge closure scandal, Bloomberg said on Wednesday. David Wildstein, who was an executive with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and another Christie aide ordered bridge lanes closed over four days in September 2013, snarling traffic on the crossing to New York City, a legislative panel said in December. Wildstein's attorney, Alan Zegas, was not immediately available for comment on the Bloomberg report, which cited a person with knowledge of the matter. In emails that surfaced after the shutdown, Wildstein and Bridget Anne Kelly, then Christie's deputy chief of staff, discussed causing "traffic problems" for a local mayor who had not supported the governor's re-election bid in 2013.
